FHM 'Racist' Cover Gets Nixed After Readers Complain (PHOTO)

Has HP become the race police? If this is racism FHM Philippines learned from the best its US counterparts. If this wasn't an election year this would go unnoticed. My gosh!

Pat Shearer, Police Sergeant Who Posted Bullet-Riddled Image Of Obama, Suspended And Demoted

There is definitely something sistered going on in our society and needs to be addressed. People are taking advantage of free speech.

Cable News Ratings: Top 30 Programs For February 2012 (PHOTOS, POLL)

MSNBC tries too hard from the 8 to 10 pm time slot. I am, however, surprised Hannity won his time slot. I had to give up on the show. He was too far out there with craziness. Anderson Cooper I like. Hats off to the Rev. Al and PoliticsNation. Ed Shultz the liberal version of Rush Limbaugh comes across as a bloviator and ODonnell a lost cause. He comes across as being too self-righteous and mean spirited. He finds it hard to be fair and balanced, so it seems.

And then there's Bill OReilly. Well, he has been making the talk show circuits. He's a keeper and winner of his time slot still.

Rush Limbaugh: Sandra Fluke, Woman Denied Right To Speak At Contraception Hearing, A 'Slut'

Isn't Rush Limbaugh considered a shock jock? If so, why give him a platform when he makes outrageous comments. Similarly to FOX News most of the population don't agree with them. So why all the free plug-ins and people get bent out of shape over what either says? The US seems to have more liberals or independents than conservatives. Perhaps some think the right will convert the others.

Islam In America: Mosques See Dramatic Increase In Just Over A Decade, According To Muslim Survey

Followers of Allah and of the Muslim religion have every right to worship or practice their faith and assemble like any other group in America (including whites, blacks, gays, straights, Christians/Protestants, Catholics, Buddhist, Hindu, agnostic, athesit, Sikh etc.) They can also say whatever they want to say including dislike for the government giving them this freedom.

"BUT" the moment they start recruiting terrorist in any shape form or fashion and giving money to support it (scared into giving or not) SHUT them DOWN! And that goes for any group promoting terrorist activity.

Tom Brokaw: Rick Santorum Is 'Like A Character In A Bruce Willis Movie' (VIDEO)

This line Tom Brokaw is a classic:

"He's like a character in a Bruce Willis movie," he said. "He just knows how to stay alive. He's running through the jungle, fighting back, shooting from the hip, takes a lot of hits, stays angry the entire time, and he is giving a voice to a lot of people out there whose lives have been completely upended."

The AP's alleged impartial reporting is a gamble with the lives of millions and for what a prize? A prize over safety? How low can you go?

Franklin Graham Apologizes To Obama For Questioning His Faith Following Criticisms Of Sowing Racial Discord

"Graham's apology came after a group of prominent black religious leaders criticized the evangelist for saying he did not know whether Obama is a Christian and suggesting that Islamic law considers him to be a Muslim."

Here's one for the books: so what if President Obama is a Muslim? What's the big deal? Are Americans not American enough to respect and accept other religions? What's the big deal here? Also, why are only black religious leaders coming out against Franklin Graham? What about members of the other Christian faith like whites, and Hispanics? Furthermore, who cares what Graham thinks? Who made him the key decision maker?

Does anyone see the contradictory here? Obviously there is a fat elephant in the room that no one wants to talk about. Instead, we hide behind hidden innuendos and suggestions instead of looking at the man in the mirror.

Ann Romney Threatens To Cut Off Media Access

Ann Romney, Mitt Romney's wife apparently "complained that members of the media didn't want to see Mitt Romney elected."

She said, "All of us in this room know the media loves Barack Obama," she said. "They don’t want anyone who has a chance of defeating him."

She should have specified which media. Sure it seems the Left wing media is in the sack for President Obama. However, the Right wing isn't for President Obama and they seem to care for Romney. That being said I guess she got it right when she said "the media."

Are "All Options on the Table" Really? Or Really!

The below statement taken from the above article says it all, so why won't the President do it?

"For an issue that rises to the highest considerations of national security one would think the president would sit his military leadership down and remind them of the old adage that "loose lips sink ships."

I have often wondered why military officials come out and speak on matters saying directly the opposite of what The White House is saying. Is this intentional or a ploy by the White House and military to get public opinion?

NYPD Surveillance: White House Helped Pay For Surveillance Of Muslim Neighborhoods

Does it really mattered if the money is used to protect us? So the money was intended to help law enforcement fight drug crimes. I bet you anything you can probably legally trace drugs back to terrorist.

Plus remember NYC did not get a lot of money from Homeland Security to fight terrorism. We all need to take a deep breath on this one. Think of all the undercover police officers on trains, airplanes, out there to foil criminal activity

What's the big deal?

Melissa Harris-Perry On 'The Help': 'Appalled At The Gross Historical Inaccuracies' (VIDEO)

No matter what role African American's play there will be controversy. Dialogue is good but at some point reality verses fiction must settle in. Movies with AA killing each other in South Central is glorified as being reality and has a message; yet a movie like "The Help" and "The Color Purple" (1985) are scrutinized to the hilt and the value of entertainment is overlooked. Sure "The Help" didn't completely tell the story of domestics in the South. Read the book "At The Dark End Of The Street" by Danielle McGuire for that. As for now can't we just see the movie for what it is a fictional account of a point in time?

Furthermore if you want something different produce it and tell it. There are so many facets in all our lives and story to be celebrated.

Risque Behavior Of A Snake on Morning TV in Chicago

During a segment on WCIU "You and Me This Morning," hosts Jeanne Sparrow and Melissa Forman spoke with members of Chicago's Herpetological Society and were introduced to several reptiles.  When they brought out a red-tailed boa constrictor, Sparrow offered to hold the snake, which almost immediately started crawling inside her shirt. As her cohost looked on in horror, Sparrow seemed to handle the situation quite well as the snake worked its way through her shirt and down her sleeve.
Sparrow instructed her cohost to do the weather while members of the Herpetological Society worked to get the snake out of her silk shirt.
Watch the whole incident above, video courtesy of WCIU.

Santorum Calling Obama A Snob?

Geez! What other adjective will Santorum come up with to describe the president?

While I don't think college is for everyone, it is a good thing to make it affordable for all. That being said, we mustn't forget about vocational schools and the necessity they bring to society. Skilled labor is what the economy is missing right now. Do we thing all in India and China have advance degrees? We would be selling ourselves short if we don't rethink vocational training.

New York Times Columnist Charles Blow Apologizes For Controversial Tweet About Mitt Romney's 'Magic Underwear'

First off you can't compare Oprah's tweet transgression with that of Blow's. Please! Apples and oranges.

Now as for Blow, why the heck weren't you thinking? Didn't you know society is becoming politically correct on just about everything. You could have made your "magical underwear" joke in the privacy of your friends but in a tweet???? Duh? I guess you were feeling a bit too empowered. Just goes to show where your mind was.

Romney, on the otherhand, could be on to something when he said: "a little surprising" and joked, "I guess we're finding out for the first time that the media is somewhat biased."

Banker Leaves 1% Tip On $133 Lunch Bill In Defiance of 'The 99%' [UPDATED]

This is the first and proper course of action. "The first thing we're going to do is to make sure the server is taken care of," Wilcox said, "and make sure the server wasn't treated badly or insufficiently tipped." He explained that they would be asking Breanna, the server named on the receipt, if she recalled the table and how her service was. "If her service was up to the level" they assume their employees would deliver, Wilcox said, "they would do everything they can to make it up to her somehow." Referring to online comments posted about the receipt, Wilcox remarked, "people are asking us to ban the person from the restaurant -- if more information came through on who the person is I first would love to talk to him."

You don't want to jump to any conclusions until all the facts are in.

NYPD Defends Tactics Over Mosque Spying; Records Reveal New Details On Muslim Surveillance

I am not at all surprised these groups are being watched. And now that this report is out they know they are being watched (thanks HP).

What's the big deal here? There are American Muslims (black, white, yellow, blue, green). There are even jewish and christian Muslims think Sean Stone (Oliver Stone's son). And they all attend different Mosque in and around New York City and other places. Islam is not a race but a religion. Unfortunately, in the mix of things are bad elements like any other religion or group of people- be it Christian, Protestant or Catholic. If you smell or see something you monitor and investigate.

We got to stop looking at these events and thinking groups are unfairly being singled out and monitored. This isn't the 70's or 80's. Globalization has brought different challenges and we must be diligent in our efforts to make certain law biding citizens are protected against those who seek to cause harm.

Whatever it is, just to enjoy and have fun doing it versus feeling pressured to succeed."

Washington Post's Jonathan Capehart Grills Chris Christie On Gay Marriage (VIDEO)

Jonathan should put the question on gay marriage to the president Why go after Christie who is saying he would support a referendum if put on the ballot. I understand why many don't want on a ballot. I wouldn't want Civil Rights placed on a ballot. But more importantly, what has the President said about gay marriage? The president is still evolving.

I personally, feel that if gay marriage is going to be legalized it should be done so at the federal level. You can't have one state recognizing the union and others not. At some point this debate has to end.

Here is a question what is marriage compared to a civil union if under the law both you get the same rights? Is marriage a religious ceremony or is it an event an institution set-up by man?
